Named as the European Capital of Culture 2008, Liverpool is one of the largest cities in England.
It has a diverse multicultural population spread across a number of boroughs. The city is perhaps most famous these days for its two football teams, Liverpool and Everton, and also for the part it played in the history of music by bringing us a large number of stars, perhaps the most famous of which was The Beatles. Liverpool is also however an industrial city with a number of large busy dockland areas. In preparation for the 2008 Capital of Culture celebrations, Liverpool underwent a number of extensive regeneration projects giving the city a revitalised look and bringing it into the 21st Century.
